Here and Now: portraits of British-Chinese identity – in pictures

Yan Wang Preston’s portrait series Here and Now explores British Chinese identity through the British landscape. She is a British-Chinese artist interested in landscape, identity, migration and the environment. She tried to portray their ‘Britishness’ instead of their ‘Chineseness’ since the former embraces the latter, and the title of the series refers to the community’s firm footing here now in Britain. Aiming to capture a diverse range of perspectives, this series is a celebration of migration and identity and tells important and inspiring stories. The series is part of the Manchester Museum’s new Lee Kai Hung Chinese Culture Gallery
